Council Boss Immunises Children of LMLG Nursery and Primary School, Onayade-Yaba.
The second round of this year’s polio immunization programme came to an end with the Executive Chairman of Yaba LCDA, Hon. AbdulRaheem Olajide Jimoh performing the immunisation exercise on the children of LMLG Nursery and Primary School at Onayade.
The chairman, in the company of the Medical Officer of Health (MOH) of the council Dr. Sunday Orebiyi and Supervisor for Health, Mrs Bisi Thomas was at the Igbobi Sabe PHC to immunize the children with the polio vaccine.
The chairman called on all parents to see the exercise as a joint and collective responsibility if our environment was to be made polio free. Government will continue to play its own role by ensuring that the vaccines get to the nooks and crannies of the state. ‘’Parents should be sensitive to the health of their Children for they are the leaders of today and tomorrow’’, he said.
Mrs Bola Adams, a teacher, commended government’s commitment towards the eradication of polio among children. She said the vaccines would lead to the reduction of meningitis among children and other related diseases. The second round exercise that began on Saturday 31st March, 2012 ended on Tuesday 3rd April, 2012.
